Welcome to my Website

I have lived in New Zealand’s beautiful farming country all my life. This rural lifestyle provides a rich source of settings and inspiration for my stories.

I write romance because I love delving into human relationships. It is these relationships in all their diversity that make the human race so fascinating. I’ve been asked why Romance and my answer is always: I write romance because to me first and last, family matters.

My latest release …. Kayla’s Christmas

What readers are saying….

Susan Rees –5 stars Youngest Mullein is the farmer who takes a wife – Fabulous series
This series has developed into a ‘keeper’ for me. I loved “Shadow Dance” …which introduced Jenna and Gabe. Now, I’m delighted to read … Heath’s story… the troubled teenager all grown up and a veterinarian farmer, managing the family property of Rata Ridge…he still carries emotional baggage from his childhood. Sarah, has her own set of serious problems and emerges out of a terrible storm… and asks him to marry her.
I so enjoyed this meeting –
…It was like welcoming old friends as…it unfolds against the setting of beautiful Katherine Bay…I want to find that stretch of coast and holiday at the Kreagan’s resort! (If only!) There is drama and mystery  and a touch of the paranormal as Cassie Piper offers her uncanny “second sight” abilities…a strong and thoroughly believable love story. Ms Wine creates a strong cast of secondary characters and reaffirms the importance of family in our lives through Heath and Sarah’s story. I’ll definitely make time to re-read this one!
